We Forget How Strong Indian Women Are: Amish on His ‘Warrior Sita’
Amish talks about his latest book Sita: Warrior of Mithila, and how contemporary Indian discourse often forgets the strong women of the past. He also explains why he chose to portray Sita as a warrior in the book.
Even though Sita is the second book in the Ram Chandra series, it is not really a sequel. Making use of the multilinear narrative, Amish has chosen to explore a character per book, delving into their past, their upbringing, and the course their narratives could potentially take in the future.
